Do you wish your phone service provider provided 4G service?

Wait….. you don't know what 4G service is, do you…..

No, I didn't think so.  You probably know this: it is better than 3G service.  As Nigel Tufnel might say, it 4G is "um…. one better" than 3G.

And you would be correct.  4G is better than 3G.

But guess what?  Nobody right now is providing what any telecom engineer would call true 4G service.  Here's an explanation.

Yes, you're being duped.  For example, T-Mobile basically rebranded its faster network as a "4G" network, but it really isn't.

Not to worry though.  The faux 4G we're hearing about now is faster than 3G. For example, Verizon's "4G' network is 10x faster than its 3G.

But here's the thing: 4G ain't the same among service providers.  Which brings me (finally) to the point of this post:

It looks like Verizon's faux 4G service is the best of the bunch (so far), although it's going to take a while for it to roll out.

That is all.
